Science Teaching and Storytelling Using Comics and Cartoons (485)
Explore the WHY and HOW of using comics and cartoons as alternative tools for science education and science-based story telling. My new book, 'The Adventures of Polo the Bear: a story of climate change’ will serve as an example of a tool designed to get your students reflecting, debating and engaging with science-related global issues of today. My first publication, 'Charles Darwin and the Theory of Natural Selection’ will be used to discuss a different approach to the tricky subject of evolution as well as the value of exploring scientific figures of history, and the unpublished ‘Fables of the Forest and Savannah’ will demonstrate the power of science-based story telling to introduce the subjects of ecology and natural history.
Leave this session feeling inspired to bring comics, cartoons and other art forms as science-teaching tools for your classroom!
